Twitter bans over 300,000 accounts for propaganda of extremism
The social network’s administration is often criticized for easy access to Twitter for extremists, - BBC
Since February, Twitter’s administration has blocked over 235,000 accounts for violations of their rights concerning propaganda of extremism.
Over the past year, the number of the banned accounts grew to 360 thousand. Many channels were blocked immediately after terrorist acts that took place across the globe in 2016.
BBC notes that all renowned extremist organizations have their own Twitter accounts. The network’s administration is often criticized for easy access for extremists; currently, they have wide opportunities for conducting propaganda via Twitter and creating new accounts instead of the banned ones.
